The former presidential aspirant of all the Progressives Congress (APC) Dr. Nicolas Felix (DNF) celebrate with Muslim faithfuls on the occasion of Eid el Fitr.
In a statement through an Instagram handle, he said, “I wish to congratulates and felicitate with the Muslim Faithful as they celebrates this year Eid Mubarak.
“As we all have the awareness that, the festive season is a period of sober reflection as a people, I therefore charge our Muslim faithfuls to embrace and exhibit the teachings and tenets of the Holy Qur’an and exemplary lifestyle of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
I wish to emphasise that, its imperative in a moment like this for us as a People to pray for the peace, progress and unity of our nation, Nigeria.
I urge all our religious leaders to use their platforms to advocate peaceful co-existence among all ethnic groups in the country; and to offer prayers for our leaders at all levels of government, as Nigeria is better off as a united and indivisible entity.
It’s equally essential to plead and enjoin our brothers and sisters in Islam as we celebrate Eid Mubarak to see the season as a self-appraisal as individuals in the service to Allah and humanity.
Hence, the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and exemplary qualities of Prophet Muhammad must be demonstrated in our daily lives, for a better society, the acts of forgiveness, almsgiving, togetherness, and selflessness must be remembered to be inculcated into our daily inter personal relationships with others as we celebrate this season.
While wishing my dear Muslim brothers and sisters a hitchfree Eid Mubarak celebration I wish to urge them to continue to pray for the country and the leaders for good governance”.
Happy Eid Mubarak Celebrations.
